May Make up favourites

Hi Guys,

Here are my May Make up faves!!!


So here we have the products that I have been using ALL month!

The products:

Illamasqua skin base foundation in sb07.

Rimmel stay matte translucent pressed powder.

Collection lasting perfection concealer. In light.

Rimmel vinyl gloss lipgloss.

Bourjois rouge edition no11 (a pinky coral colour)

MAC omega matte eyeshadow (I use this to fill my brows)
Daniel Sandler brow filler brush
Real techniques… Blush brush, powder brush, contour brush, buffing brush

Most of the stuff pictured I have been using for more than a month and I now consider my make up must haves but the below products I have been new purchases in the beginning of May!

The product I have been most impressed with is the illamasqua skin base foundation.

After reading and watching a lot of reviews I decided to purchase!


I popped down to Meadowhall (my closest shopping centre/mall) as I knew there was a illamasqua stand in Debenhams.

The lady on the counter selected the best colour for my skin. So I bought it without hesitation!

It was around £27 for 30ml. This is slightly pricey but I really don’t regret it at all! The full coverage foundation buffs into the skin very easily. It completely evens out skin tone, without looking too heavy on the skin. Only a small amount of product is needed for amazing flawless results!

I do recommend getting matched up by someone in the shop as there are so many colours and tones.

I have worn the Bourjois rouge edition no11 lipstick almost everyday.

I only used to wear bright red lipstick when going out but I saw this when shopping in boots and thought it would be perfect for everyday use!


This matte lipstick is so durable! It lasts all day with little fading! (Even after lunch)

Around £7.99 from boots stores

My other everyday use product is the collection lasting perfection concealer in light 02


This has great coverage! If you have quite a few fine lines under the eye I would suggest to use an eye cream before applying make up as it is not very moisturising and the products can sit in the creases. But it is great for dark circles under the eye and even better for concealing blemishes!

For £4.19 I think it’s a BARGIN!!!!

I hope you have liked my post! Please leave me a comment of your make up must haves!
